Installing MINIX on VMWare is simple (really):
- Download MINIX.
- Create a new VMWare virtual machine. You won't need more than 500 MB of disk space.
- Boot from the ISO image, login as root, and run setup.
- The defaults are sane, so just choose them.
To test that networking is functional, ping a common site.
